The Pink Singers started off as a group of LGBTQ+ people who came together at the request of the organisers of London’s Lesbian & Gay Pride march on 7 April 1983. Since that time the choir has grown in size and ambition and is now a registered charity.
We exist to promote the love and appreciation of music among the LGBTQ+ community and to promote equality and raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues in wider society.
The main way we achieve this is by running a choir that is a safe and welcoming space for all members of the LGBTQ+ community to come together and sing choral music. We also perform publicly to spread joy, showcase the talent within our community and inspire others. We use our platform to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, educate others, campaign for equal rights and show solidarity with LGBTQ+ people and other minority, underrepresented or oppressed groups throughout the world.
